This fruit, generally called white sapote in the United States, is distantly related to citrus. The tree is a free-growing evergreen, native to Central America, about as hardy as lemon. Fruits are near globose, 3 to 4 inches in diameter, with a thin, nearly smooth, inedible skin. Color of ripe fruit varies from green to yellow. Flesh is yellow, tender, buttery, and sweet, with a slight turpentine flavor. Trees bloom and set fruit in both spring and fall.
Production in U.S.: No data. Dooryard trees in Florida and California.
Use: Fresh eating.
Part consumed: Internal flesh only.
